How should I prepare butterfly bushes for winter?

Aren't they beautiful bushes?

Just give them a good watering and mulch well. Our recent blog post, Preparing Your Plants for Winter, has great tips. In the spring, you will need to be patient. Butterfly bushes love summertime and can be slow to leaf out until the temperature heats up. In your area, there will probably be some winter dieback and you should expect to do some pruning.
